Materials Science Institute Conference

22nd to 23rd March 2016, Lancaster University Conference Centre, Lancaster, United Kingdom. Our multidisciplinary Materials Science Institute unites chemists, physicists, engineers, computer scientists, environmental scientists, biologists, designers and social scientists, covering all development stages from modelling a new material, through material synthesis and characterization, to applying that material in the real world.

Businesses and researchers with an interest in materials science are invited to a conference to foster collaboration in this exciting field and celebrate the formation of our Materials Science Institute.

Key note speakers from Lancaster University, the High Value Manufacturing Catapult and the EPSRC, will discuss the importance of materials science followed by a wine reception at an exhibition of Lancaster’s research expertise, and dinner.

The conference will feature a series of short talks from academia, the public sector, and industry, providing excellent networking opportunities for all delegates.
